New York is full of skyscrapers, apartments, business offices, hotels and shops. In most of these buildings, there are elevators carrying people from one floor to another. Some elevators can be found on construction sites, in theaters and even in private residences. In most cases, these mechanical lifts operate without incident. What happens, though, when someone is injured in an elevator accident? Who is responsible?
Some elevator accidents happen because of poor design or maintenance. In such cases, we can help injured parties hold the responsible parties accountable in civil court. This might include the building owner, maintenance personnel or elevator manufacturer.
